This year’s Annual General Meeting will take place later than normal due to the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 health pandemic. Usually it is held in early May each year in central London. However, given the current situiation the AGM will now take place online, via Zoom, on Saturday, 29th August.
The AGM itself will take place first at 3pm, followed by the AGM lecture at 3:30pm. These times are British/Irish Summer Time (which is GMT (or UTC) +1). If you wish to attend, then confirm the equivalent time in your own time zone by clicking here: TimeandDate.com
Shortly before the event takes place, all current IGRS members will receive an email inviation with Zoom ID login details.
The AGM Lecture will be given by Dr Ciarán Wallace, deputy director of Beyond2022.ie, which is an all-island and international collaboration to launch an open-access, virtual reconstruction of the Public Record Office of Ireland’s Record Treasury, which was destroyed by fire in June 1922. Dr Wallace will speak about the background to the project and the remarkable success it is having in identifying surrogates of many classes of records destroyed almost a century ago.
We look forward to seeing you on the day!
